When we first tried to use our key to enter our two-bedroom unit, the lock would not open, but we made a quick call to the front desk, and in less than 3 minutes, a courteous maintenance man was at our front door to let us in. After another 15 minutes, we had a new lock. The unit was immaculate. There was not a spot on the carpet; clean, modern kitchen appliances; a washer/dryer; and all the amenities one could need. The living room area, with its pull-out sofa, three chairs, and 32-inch TV, was a little on the small side (only about 11 by 15 feet), but it was flanked by a generous 6-by-12-foot covered patio that overlooked the resort’s decorative reflecting pool. The TV system contained over 70 channels, including an unbelievable seven HBO channels, as well as four Starz, two Encore, and three Disney Channels. The master bedroom had a double bed (with one of most comfortable mattresses we have ever experienced), a desk, a 25-inch TV, and an upholstered chair. The master bath had a large whirlpool tub, a double sink, and a walk-in shower. The second bedroom had two twin beds, a similar 25-inch TV, and an adjoining full bath. An in-room safe was provided at no charge, and a complimentary newspaper was delivered each weekday.
The activity program had something for everyone. After the complimentary Monday morning welcome breakfast, weekly activities included evening movies, numerous craft activities, yoga, nature excursions, a bocce tournament, a pizza and movie night, and tours of Savannah, Hilton Head Island, Charleston, and Beaufort. There was even a "blackjack night" where winners could trade their "winnings" for various types of Marriott merchandise. For the more adventuresome, a kayak excursion was offered. Most of the activities required a nominal fee, but it was worth it.
The resort has two pools, three whirlpool spas, shuffleboard courts, a large fitness center, and a boardwalk that winds through the beautifully landscaped grounds and leads right to the ocean. Numerous opportunities for golf and tennis are nearby. We attended a low-key sales presentation and received $75 in "Marriott Money" that could be used at over 100 restaurants and shopping venues on Hilton Head Island.
All in all, Monarch at Sea Pines Resort is a bona fide Gold Crown destination. We enjoyed our stay and you will too.
